Count Me In seized the two hole from the gate and used the ensuing pocket trip to pull off a 15-1 upset victory in Monday's $18,000 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Mike Wilder hustled Count Me In to the front, but the pair quickly settled in behind Summer Indian, the 1-1 favorite. The 4-year-old Full Count-Howl gelding was stronger in the lane, brushing outside to defeat Summer Indian by a head in a career-best 1:53.2. Rembrandt Spur finished third.
Marty Wollam trains Count Me In, who extended his lifetime bankroll to $219,791, and owns with Acadia Farms. Wilder drove four winners and Brian Zendt three on the 15-race card. (The Meadows)
